Today we constructed 3D forms using paper that had already been printed on.
We also worked into a plate that had previously been coated with texture paste which had dried. We then painted the board with encaustic paint and scraped back to reveal the texture underneath and the worked into the surface of the board using different methods.
Everyone had a great day today. It will be interesting to see how the students work progresses. Here are some images from today’s work.
Angela and I are running a workshop at Newcastle Printmakers Workshop in Exploring Encaustic on the 24th and 25th May.
It will be an exploration of encaustic techniques, and cover all the basics.
There are just a couple of places left. Please book soon to secure a spot.
We are still in the process of constructing this blog, but we couldn't wait to tell you that our next workshop will be held on the South Coast of NSW, at Bega. We can accept 8 people, and we will both be teaching. The course will be run over the weekend of 29th November &1st December and you will have the opportunity to spend the following Monday working in the studio using our equipment under supervision if you wish. This course is a comprehensive Introduction to Encaustic and is suitable both for beginners and for more experienced artists.
